Illustrator uses a font engine that is not capable of doing single line fonts. All fonts in illustrator are outlines no matter what. If we take CNC Vector as an example its simply a outline that turns up on itself, so it is not truly a singe line font as far as illustrator or your cad is concerned. So beware if you use a cnc machine/ laser cutter the area ...

I did a comparison of Twentieth Century Pro Bold Italic, that Mvp Web Pro suggested. And turns out they are quite close, but not an exact match. Since my initial comparison of Futura LT HeavyOblique and the screengrab and this one are that close, I'll answer my own question and close the question. Thanks for the help!

Wikipedia, 'Small caps' page: In typography, small capitals (usually abbreviated small caps) are uppercase (capital) characters set at the same height and weight as surrounding lowercase (small) letters or text figures. They are used in running text to prevent capitalized words from appearing too large on the page, and as a method of emphasis or ...

I decided to answer my own question. @Copilot suggested some fonts, and @Cai suggested that I ought to use dots or lines to indicate the correct orientation. After browsing some other fonts by their images (see below) I decided that the ones that sort of differentiate between the digits were not different enough or were too ugly (personal preferences). ...

I don't have a font suggestion for you, but I want to challenge the idea. The problem with 6 and 9 on a dice isn't that they look the same as each other—the problem is that a 6 or 9 could be seen as either, so your 6 will still look like a 9 when rotated 180 degrees, and your 9 will still look like a 6 when rotated 180 degrees, even though they are ...

Wow, that's surprisingly hard! Some script fonts do - Segoe Script and on a Mac Klee, Nanum Pen Script, Wawati. A geometric sans-serif might, but I don't know of one that does.

I checked your screen capture out on http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ When I used all the recognizable characters, it didn't find a match, but when I used only the "J", it found it right away. Try - Twentieth Century Pro Bold Italic Looks like a match to me, using the "playbox" on ...

A typeface is one specific style of lettering: Times, Helvetica, Poetica, Adobe Garamond. Sometimes there is just one typeface to that name, period: Michelangelo, Caliban, Harrington. Since in most programs you have the ability to add formatting to a typeface (like bold or italic), and in layout progams you want aesthetic flexibility, type designers have ...

Often slight differences between terms are missed when starting out. Some terms are mis-used, and some are misunderstood. I like to use an analogy or a metaphor to help distinguish between similar terms. If I'm lucky, the analogy holds and the answer helps make things clearer Type designers will sometimes make different weights (stroke thicknesses), style ...

It's best practice to convert all fonts into outlines when exporting to SVG, otherwise the font has to be installed on the users OS. As Proxima Nova is not included in any OS font library, the browser uses a different standard font family. Only a few browsers support SVG fonts (see here), thats why it will show a different font even if you have Proxima Nova ...

Here's where the word "creative" comes in. Try a search for Novelty or Quirky typefaces. Maybe you can find a stock typeface that will please your client. There are tens of thousands of unmodified stock typefaces that are quite distinctive. Once you have some likely candidates, you can apply effects to them to modify them in a way to make them unique for ...

Boldface with italics lacks sufficient emphasis I don't think it does, actually. The italics make it feel like those words are specific terms that we've learned about previously in the document and should take note of when they appear. APA Style would probably categorize these as "key terms", as discussed in this post. A key term italicized in an APA ...

Another option: Drop the bold and use color for the whole emphasised string, then bold or italic the extra-emphasised words. Using color isn't a bad option but if the whole string being emphasised is more important than the specific words I would keep the whole emphasised string the same color (wether that is the same color as the full paragraph or not). ...

It looks similar to Space Age, with some modifications (cropped ends, crossbar on the G shortened, custom swoop on the A, etc). I doubt you'll find an exact replica of the font though – all of these 'spacey' fonts seem to be inspired by the classic NASA typeface (there's a free version here), but you'll need to play around with any of them to get your ...

Without a clearer image it's hard to tell but it looks like it has been edited from or based on Handel Gothic Italic (either Bold or Heavy). The curves are more geometric, so this may have been re-drawn, but the proportions are all the same so I would say it is at least based on Handel Gothic.

I work with SVGs a lot, as I'm a web designer. If I want to maintain the shape (font style) of my text, I open Adobe Illustrator, write what I want and 'Create Outlines' out of it. It's not that time consuming, just make sure you copy the text before Outlining it to keep an editable version.

I had the very same problem before and i didn't find a successful solution so i did this: I organized my fonts in a nested folder way Now i use Linotype FontXplorer X (For mac, in windows i cannot replicate the function) and i search the fonts by path. So when i look for 'sans geometric' I get the fonts that are in that folder. That's the best solution ...

Two font managers I have used for the last few years Suitcase Fusion and FontExplorer X. Both are extremely useful solutions. I personally much prefer FontExplorer, which is what I currently use. FontExplorer lets you easily and automatically organize fonts with Smart Sets. Manually sort your fonts in to groups. It has easy activation control with ...

There are plenty of font management software solutions out there. I personally prefer Suitcase Fusion for individual but if you have a company I would suggest Universal Type Server. Both software are developed by Extensis. If you use Adobe you could use their Typekit. Also related: Font management tools for Mac What is a good free font management tool ...

There are probably either alternate glyphs for the character or ligatures that include that character in the font. You can check if this is the case in InDesign by opening the Glyphs panel (Window → Type & Tables → Glyphs) and searching for any other glyphs that include that character. You can open the font in any font manager or editor and check the ...

I'm sorry for answering super late, I've just noticed your mention. I'm the author of the article you link to. There is definitely more than one "professional" way of handling several resolutions, and things have become a bit more mature since I wrote about it. If you've bumped your resolution to 144ppi, you can fix the zoom and size issues by doubling your ...

Different width spaces kind of defeats the whole point of a monospaced font so I doubt there are many. It would be easier to either: Edit the width of the spaces of an existing font in a font editor. FontForge is a free open source font editor. Change the word-spacing setting of whatever software you are using (most design software or word processors will ...
